Pompey fans want key positions to be filled
Pompey boss Kenny Jackett has room to manoeuvre in the transfer market following Gary Roberts' departure.
A central midfielder had been prioritised following the summer departures of Michael Doyle, Amine Linganzi and Stanley Aborah.
But with left-back Tareiq Holmes-Dennis likely to be out for a while with a knee injury, is there more pressing concerns for the manager?

n Play Haunstrup. He seems decent and deserves a chance.
I’d say get in a midfielder to cover Rose and Baker as only have Close and May.
n I’d hope for a CM to replace Baker, he was a very obvious weak link against Rochdale.
n If we can only have one, a midfielder is key, otherwise we will get muscled out of some games, especially away from home. Talbot and Haunstrup can cover left back.
n Why not both if Roberts wages will cover it?
Short term loan of a LB (until New Year) and a CM either permanent or a season’s loan.
n Should have kept Linganzi. Need a midfielder badly.
n Play Haunstrup or Talbot at LB and focus on bringing in a large central midfielder who can win things in the air and carry the ball up the pitch.
n Harry Forrester has been told he is Free to leave Rangers! Could be a great signing for us!
n Bring in both.
n Need a left-back. If Brandon got injured got no one at left back.
n Newcastle midfielder Jack Colback, 27, is set to be left out of the promoted side’s 25-man Premier League squad. (Shields Gazette).
Worth looking at could be some good potential at Newcastle as they need to trim their squad.
n I still think a left-back so we have 2 fit again. Roberts wasn’t likely to play and we have cover there.
